Glenmarnock Wheelers were founded in 1941 by cyclists from the RutherGLEN and DalMARNOCK districts of Glasgow. The new club attracted many people into the sport, initially by introducing them to the delightful countryside which surrounds the city on Sunday clubruns but later expanding horizons by escaping for weekend and longer trips all over Scotland, staying in youth hostels, at a time when family motoring was almost unknown in postwar Britain. Members also raced and time trialled all over the country.
